We have planned the 2023 Rimi Riga Marathon as a dress rehearsal of the first World Athletics Road Running Championships, which will take place in Riga in 30 September – 1 October! If in 2022 you were able to run the planned World Championship half-marathon and DPD Mile courses then in the Rimi Riga Marathon 2023 on May 6 and 7 we will also hand over the planned World Championship 5 km course.

 

Please note that in May 2023, we have adjusted the marathon distance course to the development plans of the city of Riga (a number of the planned and measured 42 km course will be reconstructed or included, for example, in the construction plans of Rail Baltica), thus we will run the classic marathon distance in two half-marathon laps with a brand new starting place at the foot of Akmens Bridge, an impressive finish on the November 11 Embankment, as well as an “excursion” in Ķipsala reserved only for marathoners. Marathon and half-marathon runners will start together again at 8.00 in the morning, they will be followed by 10 km runners at 12.30 and 5 km runners at 14.30 As the old saying goes, Riga should never be ready, so we ask for your understanding as we adapt to Riga’s reconstruction and development plans in 2023.
